FASFA & Paying for College


Military

 

Military Academies - Military Academies in the United States offer an excellent option for students who are interested in serving the country and receiving a quality education at no cost. All five of the undergraduate military academies have selective admissions, and all require at least five years of service upon graduation. Click on the profile links for more information.

 

ROTC - If you’re at least 17 years old, interested in joining the military and finding a way to pay for school, the ROTC might be for you. ROTC stands for Reserve Officer Training Corps and is one of the most all-encompassing scholarship programs in the United States. As part of ROTC, students receive the education necessary to excel as future Officers in the Army, Navy, and Air Force.

During school, ROTC members function like any other college or university student. ROTC classes are a requirement as well as other training programs over the summer, depending on the branch. Upon graduation, you won’t have to search for a job. You’ll be enlisted as an Officer in your respective branch—the equivalent of a high-profile job at a corporation. A 4 – 10 year commitment is required based on military branch.

Enlisting Options - Thinking about a career in the military? You have plenty of options in the five branches of the U.S. armed services. Each has a unique mission.

  • U.S.Army - Defends U.S. interests and those of its allies through land-based operations anywhere in the world. Army personnel work in jobs ranging from general administration to the operation and maintenance of weapons, vehicles, aircraft carriers, and electronic systems. The Army National Guard can be called to active duty as a reserve of the Army. The National Guard also assists during times of natural or other state emergencies.
  • U.S. Navy - Defends the right to travel and trade freely on the world's oceans and protects U.S. interests overseas during times of international conflict. They serve on ships, submarines, in aviation positions on land and sea, and at shore bases around the world.
  • U.S. Air Force - Flies aircraft, such as long-range bombers, supersonic fighters, and many others, to protect the interests of America and its allies.
  • U.S. Marine Corps - One of the most elite fighting forces in the world. Marines fly planes and helicopters, operate radar equipment, drive armored vehicles, and gather intelligence. Training programs emphasize the development of mental strength and physical prowess.
  • U.S. Coast Guard - Protects U.S. coastlines and inland waterways by enforcing customs and fishing laws, combating drug smuggling, conducting search and rescue missions, maintaining lighthouses, and promoting boat safety. In times of war, the Coast Guard is under the command of the Navy.
